Marus lives somewhat in the shadow of his ruling sister, Elana. This isn’t for Marus’ lack of talent or prowess, but more his subservience to his dear younger sister. Being born male, and with a visage much less striking than his sister’s, he gets less attention and he enjoys the simplicity.
Tall and brawny with a body hewn for battle, Marus would normally be considered divinely handsome to most, bearing eyes of deep emerald and dark locks of almond brown. In the grove, however, Marus is merely another guardian of “Mother” and isn’t bothered by his lot in life. Only Norlus Moontide and his wife Feerus’s piety rival Marus’ loyalty and dedication to Rytiock.
